CEBU CITY, Philippines – Police now have custody of a man who is blamed for the fire that burned down around 300 homes in Sitio Lawis in Barangay Mambaling, Cebu City on Friday, November 26.

The 39-year-old suspect, who is also a former detainee and a drug addict, is now admitted to a hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to his right chest and lacerations to his head and face after being mutilated by locals in anger.

Firefighter 2 (FO2) Fulbert Navarro of the Cebu City Fire Department said they had not yet determined the actual cause of the blaze. But with the arrest of the suspected arsonist, Navarro said, their investigation will now focus on the possibility that the blaze that displaced more than 3,000 people was done on purpose.

The damage caused by the fire was estimated at 875,000 P.

Navarro said he would soon visit the suspect, who is renting a room from Sitio Lawis, to also take his side. But he wanted to give her time to recover from her injuries which also cause her speech difficulties.

Citing the outcome of their initial investigation, Navarro said, a commotion was reported at the home of a certain Marlyn Sitoy, the suspect’s landlady.

He said the suspect threw a lit butane stove at Sitoy’s home and prevented neighbors from trying to put out the flame.

Navarro said the suspect was armed with a KG9 machine gun and threatened to shoot anyone who approached.

He said a brother tried to help the suspect escape but was followed by angry locals. Exchanges of gunfire were also heard near the coastal area of ​​the barangay, where the suspect was later found by police.

Navarro said he would coordinate with the Mambaling Police Station in their ongoing investigation into the blaze.

But it is the fire investigators who will file an arson complaint against the suspect as soon as he is released from the hospital.

Jonathan lnoc, an non-uniformed staff member assigned to the Mambaling police station, said that the Cebu City Police Bureau (CCPO) Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) had a blotter on the suspect’s arrest. Friday night. But they continue to look into his track record.

Spokane Fire Department budget skyrockets by $ 5 million https://coltsneckfair.com/spokane-fire-department-budget-skyrockets-by-5-million/ Thu, 25 Nov 2021 12:02:11 +0000 https://coltsneckfair.com/spokane-fire-department-budget-skyrockets-by-5-million/ Mayor Nadine Woodward pledged this week to conduct an audit as the city revealed it expects the Spokane Fire Department to exceed its 2022 budget by $ 5 million.

Mayor Nadine Woodward pledged this week to conduct an audit as the city revealed it expects the Spokane Fire Department to exceed its 2022 budget by $ 5 million.

Sick leave usage and overtime costs have skyrocketed in recent months, according to city officials, who have pledged to analyze ways to keep spending under control.

Woodward on Tuesday announced a full external review of leave usage.

“This particular issue came as a surprise, so I think we need to dig a little deeper into how we got here,” Woodward said in an interview.

City council members strongly disagreed and said they had raised concerns about the fire department’s budget for months and overtime spending practices for years.

The union, too, was baffled. The surprise of officials “doesn’t make sense to me,” said Randy Marler, president of Local 29 of the Spokane Fire Union.

“We have had staff shortages, and this is not unique to the Spokane Fire Department, the general fire department nationwide struggles to fill the seats of fire trucks every day. “said Marler.

The administration has asked city council for approval of a special budget ordinance to remove $ 5 million from the city’s reserves to cover the deficit, which the city’s chief financial officer Tonya Wallace called Monday “financial bleeding”.

Monthly overtime costs are typically around $ 232,000 per bi-weekly pay period, but have climbed to about $ 576,000 per pay period in recent weeks, according to city spokesman Brian Coddington.

“We have to understand the data, we have to understand the reasons behind it and the steps that can be taken to move forward,” Coddington said.

The city budgeted approximately $ 56 million for fire and emergency medical services in 2021. The overrun was reported during routine year-end budget preparations conducted by city finance staff. , said Coddington.

The audit is expected to take up to six weeks, so its results will likely not inform the 2022 city budget, which is expected to be voted on by city council on December 13.

From the union’s point of view, the math is relatively straightforward. It has 71 seats in fire trucks across town to fill each day according to Spokane’s minimum staffing levels. Overtime is only performed when those seats are not filled, Marler said.

Since 2018, the city has only recruited 18 new firefighters, but many more than that have retired, Marler said. The pandemic has caused more retirees than expected, he added.

Marler wants to see the data to confirm that there has been a significant increase in leave. If there was, he suggested it might have coincided with the arrival of the delta variant, which affected even vaccinated firefighters, he said. There was an increased awareness of not coming to work sick.

Spokane city council members were singled out in their reaction to the budget overrun on Monday when it was explained to the committee on public infrastructure, environment and sustainability.

Several noted that they had drawn attention to the fire department’s budget problems for months or, in some cases, years.

Council members have long called for a survey of overtime spending in police and fire departments, and funded a study on overtime in the 2021 city budget. The city regularly spends more than overtime for public safety than budgeted.

“I have asked for this overtime survey every year because every year we have had this problem, for eight years,” said City Councilor Candace Mumm.

Mumm said the city’s reluctance to initiate the study cost him millions of dollars.

The study is expected to begin in December pending city council approval, Coddington said, and will be conducted by an outside consultant. It was delayed for several months as other priorities took precedence, he said.

The $ 110,000 Overtime Compensation Study is separate from the Audit of Leave Usage and Practices, for which there is no cost estimate.

City Councilor Lori Kinnear noted she raised concerns about the budget at a committee meeting in August after speaking with a firefighter who raised the issue.

“I haven’t received any definitive answer as to why this happened or whether anything would be done to keep this under control,” Kinnear said.

Kinnear urged the administration to provide the exact surplus instead of a request of around $ 5 million.

“I am deeply disappointed. I feel like I was not listened to… yes, I certainly expect there will be changes in the future, ”said Kinnear.

City Councilor Betsy Wilkerson said the budget request sounded like a “punch,” but said she planned to back it.

While awaiting the outcome of the audit, the City has taken measures to limit spending.

The 331-employee department has recruited nearly 100 candidates for 20 open positions, according to Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer. He will begin interviews after the Thanksgiving vacation and send new recruits to the academy in February.

The department lost six employees and 10 others remain on leave after the state’s vaccine mandate took effect in October, but the increase in leave utilization has occurred in the previous months. Sick leave in November is running below October, Coddington said.

This will help fill vacancies left by retirements and more than a dozen firefighters who have left due to Governor Jay Inslee’s coronavirus vaccination mandate.

“We have a clear direction to ensure that our daily staff is maintained, that there is no decrease in service and that this commitment has been clearly expressed throughout the process,” said Schaeffer.

Marler agreed that the February academy offers “the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Schaeffer issued a directive to limit overtime to emergencies only and ban spending on non-essential equipment.

City administrator Johnnie Perkins told council the mayor had asked the city’s chief financial officer to analyze its internal controls, tighten spending, and make sure city leaders understand their budget and goals. expenses.

“There is a lot more that will continue on this effort over the next few weeks and months,” Wallace assured the board.

The exceedances are unique to the fire department and have not been seen to the same degree in the police department, Coddington said.

Matthew Scott Lanz, 22, was arrested in Sandy Springs, Georgia on Friday after allegedly stabbing a police officer, who was responding to an ongoing burglary, according to a press release from the Sandy Springs Police Department (SSPD.)

Officers discovered Lanz inside the residence upon arrival and a confrontation ensued, the statement said. The agents attempted unsuccessfully to subdue Lanz by using a Taser on him, he said, and it was at this point that Lanz repeatedly stabbed one of the agents who responded.

“A deputy officer who witnessed the attack shot the suspect in an attempt to stop the stabbing. The injured officer was rushed to a local hospital where he was treated for his multiple injuries. “, says the press release. The injured officer was later released from hospital, update says tweeted by SSPD Saturday.

Lanz was also sent to a hospital in the area after the shooting, officials said.

Lanz had no connection with the neighborhood where the burglary took place and did not know the owners, police said.

According to SSPD, Lanz is the brother of Austin William Lanz, the man who, according to the FBI, fatally stabbed a Pentagon police officer on August 3, before committing suicide with the officer’s service weapon.

Couple killed in their house

Lanz was later identified as the suspect in the murder of a husband and wife Thursday in Acworth, where he lives, according to a press release from the Cobb County Police Department. Acworth is approximately 25 miles northwest of Sandy Springs.

Cobb County Police identified the victims as Timothy Justin Hicks, 31, and his wife Amber Hicks, 31. Firefighters in neighboring Cherokee County confirmed on their Facebook page that Hicks had been a firefighter in the department for more than six years.

The couple were found dead at their home from gunshot wounds. Cobb County Police said a 2-year-old was also in the house but was not injured. Investigators said in the statement that the incident appeared to have happened overnight, but did not give a specific timeline.

Lanz faces two counts of murder and several other counts, including home invasion, aggravated assault, possession of weapons and attempted murder in connection with the two incidents, according to the SSPD. In Cobb County, the statement said he is charged with two counts of murder, aggravated assault, home invasion and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.

CNN has contacted Lanz’s duty counsel for comment, but has not received a response.

Lanz was transferred to Fulton County Jail after being released from hospital, the SSPD and Cobb County said in their statements. He is still in detention, according to prison records.

Court records show he made his first court appearance on Friday. His next court date has yet to be released.

In September 2021, a mother-daughter duo were killed in a fire that broke out in an apartment near Bannerghatta Road. After the incident, whether in the media or in discussions with friends and colleagues, there was sudden interest and a wave of questions about who can be held responsible for fires in tall buildings. Just last week, another apartment fire near Electronic City put the issue into question.

Often people conclude that the fires are due to the negligence of the builders. Builders could either construct buildings in violation of the sanctioned plan or resort to bribery and obtain certificates of occupancy (COs) without complying with applicable laws.

But what about residents and apartment owners in these buildings? Are residents mere victims or do they also have responsibilities under the law? If so, where does the responsibility of the constructor end and where does the responsibility of the inhabitants begin?


Read more: Find out if your building is too secure to be safe


What do the rules say?

On July 7, 2011, pursuant to orders made by the Honorable High Court of Karnataka in a written petition filed by Beyond Carlton Trust, the Government of Karnataka issued a notification specifying measures to be followed by builders, owners and residents to prevent the risk of fire in high-rise buildings, that is, buildings 15 meters or more in height.

One of those measures that has been notified is the requirement to receive a fire safety certificate, which we generally refer to as the fire department’s NOC, before the BBMP can issue a certificate of occupancy. The builder generally assumes this responsibility.

But what happens once an OC is purchased, when would the builder have left the project? Interestingly, the notification concerns the guarantee of fire safety after occupation also.

Obligations of residents with regard to fire safety

As part of the notification, to ensure regular compliance with fire safety laws, three main obligations were imposed on residents and Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs). These come into play once residents start occupying apartments.

First, the fire safety certificate issued by the fire department must be renewed once every two years with the BBMP.

Second, residents should ensure that the biennial check of the apartment complex is carried out by a fire officer and a representative of the RWA. At this stage, a report will be formulated by the fire department explaining the conformances and deficiencies.

Finally, every two years, the RWA must provide an affidavit explaining the operational status of the fire safety system as well as the report from the fire officer, the fire department and the BBMP. A surprise check could also be performed by the inspector appointed by the fire department once every two years to verify the same.

The notification clearly states that residents and the RWA are responsible for certificate renewal, biennial verification, and submission of an affidavit of compliance. Failure to do so could lead to legal consequences.

What are the consequences of fire safety non-compliance?

If the deficiencies notified in the report are not rectified or, if rectified, not informed to the fire department officer within three months of this notice, not only BESCOM (Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd) will disconnect the electrical connections to the building, but the building itself will be sealed to avoid any risk of fire. BBMP will also have to suspend the Certificate of Occupation issued.

Residents can enter or exit the building alone after the deficiencies notified in the report are rectified. In addition, the occupancy certificate must be obtained again from BBMP after produce a certificate of conformity issued by the firefighter. Failure to comply with notifications may result in the initiation of criminal proceedings by firefighters under the provisions of applicable laws.

Whenever people are faced with horrific accidents, whether it’s the Carlton Towers fire or an apartment fire near Bannerghatta, they tend to assume that they will never be the ones. victims. However, residents and homeowners can no longer avoid liability for fire hazards that may or may not occur due to their negligence and ignorance by simply blaming the builder.

As a resident, we can avoid the risk of fire, but we cannot avoid the liability under the law.

A prison officer has been sentenced to two to four years in state prison for his role in a drug trafficking ring inside the Bucks County Correctional Facility, authorities said Friday.

Joseph J. Jennings, 33, of Warminster, pleaded guilty Wednesday to smuggling and criminal conspiracy, according to the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office.

He was one of nine men charged in June 2020 with the scheme to smuggle Suboxone tapes into the prison for distribution to inmates, authorities said.

Investigators found that Jennings smuggled Suboxone into the prison on several occasions between October 2018 and July 2019 while employed as a warden assigned to the restrictive housing unit at Doylestown Prison, the office said. prosecutor.

Jennings gave the drugs to an inmate, Vincent McCandless Sr., 36, who then distributed them to other inmates in the prison, investigators said.

Jennings obtained the Suboxone from Joseph R. Wilson, 41, of Philadelphia, and McCandless’ juvenile son, authorities said.

Inmates paid for the drugs by asking family members to wire money to Wilson or by depositing money into the account of the McCandless Prison Commissioner, authorities said.

“This anti-drug organization would not have been discovered without the prison’s diligent investigators,” Deputy District Attorney Mary Kate Kohler said.

“They worked tirelessly alongside Bucks County detectives to uncover his enormous reach and the root of the problem – a dirty guard. Law enforcement in this county will not tolerate a “bad apple” in their ranks.

McCandless Sr. pleaded guilty to smuggling and criminal conspiracy in April and was sentenced to 35 to 70 months in state prison to serve after serving the sentence that landed him in jail, said the prosecutor’s office.

McCandless Sr. was serving a sentence of four and a half to ten years in state prison at the time of his arrest, authorities said.

Wilson has pleaded guilty and is expected to be sentenced in December, while McCandless’s juvenile son was found to be a delinquent earlier this year, investigators said.

The other people who have pleaded guilty are:

Travis Davies, 33, from Levittown, Joseph Korhan, 48, from Woodstown, NJ, Robert Monacelli, 29, from Falls Township, Richard Dzielinski, 42, from Philadelphia.

A ninth person, Jonathan King, 32, of Wilkes Barre, awaits his court appearance, authorities said.

Tribune press service

Jalandhar, November 18

The district has 800 private hospitals and is known as Asia’s largest health insurance center, but fire safety arrangements at most health facilities have not been verified for ages.

In addition, the majority of hospitals in Jalandhar District do not have designated fire safety officers despite the 2020 Supreme Court guidelines calling for a nodal officer for each facility.

The exact number of hospitals in the district that have received notices of compliance will be clear once we receive the lists. Instructions have been given to hospitals to obtain fire safety audits. Jaswant Singh, Assistant Division Fire Officer, Jalandhar

In view of recent fires in medical facilities in various parts of the country, instructions for fire safety audits have recently been issued to hospitals. A nodal officer also asked hospitals to review their fire safety arrangements. Ghashyam Thori, Deputy Commissioner, Jalandhar

Lack of space, including that for vehicle parking, is a problem faced by most hospitals, but many have found shortcut solutions for the same.

In some establishments, underground parking is next to the laboratories. Sensitive services are housed in numerous commercial basements closed on all sides.

A few recently renovated hospitals have state-of-the-art facilities and sprinklers to extinguish the flames. Many hospitals have towering, dangerous buildings with some floors marked by a network of sturdy cables and wires for complex medical equipment.

Even hospitals with proper fire safety equipment do not conduct regular mock drills or perform maintenance. This increases the chances of equipment malfunctioning when the need arises.

Sources from the fire and health services told The Tribune that politicians and key officials sometimes called when large hospitals were denied NOCs (No Objection Certificates). “‘Sifarish culture’ is a habit for a hospital to obtain an NOC despite inadequate firefighting arrangements,” the sources added.

Many hospitals also have PROs, security personnel, or even clerks or accountants who are also fire safety personnel. Most of them are not trained in fire safety protocol.

The city’s two private hospitals, Vedanta Hospital and Sigma Hospital, which The Tribune visited, had basic fire safety arrangements.

The parking lot in the basement of the Vedanta Hospital, which also houses a laboratory, had three oxygen cylinders while all floors had two or more, with the exception of the downstairs OPD, who only had one.

In addition, an oxygen cylinder is stored outside the gallery of the Vedanta Hospital. There is a fire extinguisher in the oxygen storage area of ​​the hospital. Meanwhile, the upper floors of the hospital have two or more fire extinguishers. The hospital, however, does not have hydrants.

Meanwhile, at Sigma Hospital, which also specializes in pediatrics and childcare, fire hoses are installed on each floor. The fire extinguishing cylinders at the hospital were valid until this month (November). Almost all of the cylinders, except a few, had an expiration date of November 2021. With the exception of the crowded ground floor of the hospital, which also houses the neonatal care unit, it there is a network of pipes, wires, etc. in some sections. The two upper floors of the hospital are better ventilated.

Vedanta hospital authorities also shared the NOC with The Tribune, which was recently renewed.

Divisional Assistant Fire Officer Jalandhar Jaswant Singh said: “The exact number of hospitals in the district that have received notices of compliance will be clear once we receive the lists. Instructions have been given to hospitals to obtain fire safety audits. “

“Only 15-20% of large hospitals in Jalandhar have state-of-the-art automatic sprinkler systems. The rest of the hospitals only have basic fire safety provisions. However, most hospitals are adept at dealing with the demands of fire. Basements are also used in many hospitals where sprinkler systems have been installed, ”he added.

A three-service emergency control room for the Surrey, West and East Sussex fire and rescue services was put into operation today (Wednesday 17 November).

The Surrey Control Room began receiving calls for the West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (WSFRS) in December 2019.

In January last year, the East Sussex Fire Authority made the decision to join the three-service control room, within a shared control center based in Surrey. For several months, the teams have been working on the alignment of services, ensuring the training of localized skills and knowledge.

A high-tech secondary control room was completed at SFRS’s new headquarters in Reigate along with upgrades to the main control room.

SFRS Fire Chief Steve Owen-Hughes said: “We are thrilled to host the call taking and mobilization for East Sussex now as well as Surrey and West Sussex. The strengthened partnership, combined with our great collaborators and our new working methods, will increase resilience and the number of employees, as well as better value for money, thus benefiting the three departments and the residents.

“Our mobilizing control system is state of the art, proven and has the capacity to take a high volume of emergency calls.

“I want to take this opportunity to really thank all colleagues and partners for their dedication and hard work in bringing this project to fruition and making it a success. “

ESFRS Fire Chief Dawn Whittaker said: “Not only do operators respond to 999 calls from the public, giving advice and support to people in distress, but they also ensure that the right resources such as fire trucks and specialist teams are dispatched to the scene. This joint venture means the three departments can learn operational knowledge and expertise from each other, and support each other, which in turn benefits visitors, businesses and residents of East Sussex and Brighton. and Hove. A change of this magnitude is not always easy and it is fair to recognize the hard work of those on our monitoring team who have continued to provide professional service during this time.

WSFRS Fire Chief Sabrina Cohen-Hatton said: “We have always worked closely with our neighboring emergency service partners to help keep all of our residents safe in the event of an emergency, and so I am delighted that the Fire and Rescue Service of the East Sussex has taken the exciting step of joining our Joint Fire Control. in partnership with the Surrey Fire and Rescue Service. This project represents a significant investment in all of our communities and will ensure that we will remain resilient and best positioned to serve our residents for many years to come.

After being captured by a killer, Office Nolan must fight for his life in the final episode of The Rookie.

Disclaimer: The following contains spoilers for The Rookie Season 4, Episode 7, “Fire Fight,” which aired Sunday, November 14 on ABC.

In recent weeks, John Nolan and his fellow officers have had some pretty high profile cases. They dealt with a Joker-like criminal who started a deadly treasure hunt, literally drug-induced zombies on Halloween night, and Russian spies operating in a safe house in Los Angeles. While all of this was going on, however, the LAPD was also investigating a murderous arsonist, and this multi-part subplot became the central story of “Fire Fight”.


It all started a few episodes ago when Nolan and Lucy saved someone from a burning house. Firefighters later found a body inside the charred building, and from the witness’s statement and the identification of the accelerators, the LAPD determined that the fire had been started to cover up a murder. Since then, Harper has uncovered several similar cases, where a man hit people with his car and “took them to the hospital”, only to take them away, kill them and burn them in an arson attack. Thus, the criminal in question was both an arsonist and a serial killer.

Rookie Bailey

Since his incident in the burning building, Nolan has seen Bailey, a former firefighter girlfriend. This was unrelated until last week, when she helped identify who they believed to be the killer. During a barbecue, they found the same fire accelerator from the crime scenes in his fire captain’s garage, and the two became suspicious. So, against his better judgment, Bailey broke into his house and found documents that linked him to the murders. At the end of the episode, Nolan and Angela went to arrest him, but just as they arrived a bomb went off, set the house on fire and killed their suspect.

It looked like the case was over – the arsonist having apparently committed suicide, until this week when a posthumous alibi surfaced for the fire captain. By reopening the investigation, the team did everything to find the killer, as no one had worked hard to trap the fire captain. They were on the verge of solving the case when Nolan identified the killer as Marcus – a friend of Bailey’s and a neighbor of the fire captain. Nolan recognized a burn mark on Marcus’ back that a survivor had mentioned, but before he could react, Nolan almost found himself the last victim of the killer.

Rookie Nolan lights a car

Marcus hit Nolan with his car, drugged him and took him away. When Nolan woke up he found himself still dizzy with his hands tied together. Marcus then shared his motive for killing – pleasure. He rushed off and said he would be the happiest man in the world if he could kill every day. However, the twisted plot didn’t end there because Marcus loved making a killing game. So he drugged Nolan again, gave him a head start and told him to run.

With his hands still tied and everything was spinning, Nolan had his work cut out for him. After a long chase and dodging bullets from a handgun, shotgun, and assault rifle, Nolan was able to stab Marcus with scissors and escape the warehouse. Once outside, Nolan got into Marcus’ car with bullets still flying everywhere and shards of glass, but there he found a phone and called 911. At the same time, he plugged in the car and drove off. ran into Marcus with it, which was a good bit of karma. Later, Nolan woke up in the hospital, quite beaten, but without broken bones. So it looks like it will be like new in no time.

To see what Nolan and the rest of the LAPD are up to next, log into the Rookie. The new episodes air Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.

JACKSON, Tenn. – The Jackson Fire Department wants you to join their team.

The ministry is experiencing a staff shortage due to many retirements.

Like many employers nationwide, they too are struggling to find employees.

They currently have 12 vacancies to fill and plan to start a large class after the first of the year.

“A person should have compassion for people, a willingness to help the public. And it’s more than a salary. It’s more than an hourly wage. It’s about going out into the community and really doing good and coming away with a feeling of satisfaction: “Hey, we did our best. We made a difference that day. And it’s not just one individual. This is a bunch of people, ”said Don Friddle, deputy chief of the Jackson Fire Department.

Friddle says that once you’ve filled out an application, passed a few tests, and interviewed, you’ll go through the 12-week recruiting program.

“The training is tough, but I promise you this will be the most rewarding 12 weeks you have ever had. In the end you will look back and realize that you have really worked and that you are going to have a very impressive career, ”said Jana Compton, instructor for the Jackson Fire Department.

Compton says the training incorporates a lot of hands-on learning to make sure you’re ready when you go on operations.

“With these 12 weeks, I make sure I incorporate everything you need to be ready to respond to any emergency you may be called upon. The guys on the job find that the firefighters coming out of recruit school are better prepared for the job and ready to go to work. Immediately, ”Compton said.

Sixth-year firefighter Brady Stewart says the experience is worth it.

“We don’t do this work for ourselves. We do it for the community. You definitely feel like you’re helping the whole community every time you step out of the station, ”said Stewart.

Plus, while you’re busy helping Jackson City, you make lifelong friends who experience the same training.

“I’m just going to be like a second home. You know, you’re going to have a family away from family. The people you eat and sleep with 24 hours a day, 120 days a year. You know, they get to know you and you get to know them. You know them. You can call them, you know, for help with just about anything, ”said Latrell Billingsley, public education manager for the Jackson Fire Department.

Billingsley says that work provides financial stability, a good retirement and pension, plenty of days off, keeps you in shape and constantly learning new skills. And all this for the benefit of the community.

“Our first week was like, okay. Now, instead of working normally for eight hours or five hours, you’re here for 24 hours and you’re going to stay here. You can’t leave here unless everyone goes with you in a fire truck. So you know it was a pretty big culture shock. They become memorable. Those first and first calls that you have, your experiences with firefighters and the people you meet and meet, you remember them, ”Billingsley said.

Billingsley says every day at work can start the same way, but it will be something different every day.

INDIANAPOLIS – IMPD detectives are currently investigating a body found in a house on the near east side as a homicide.

Firefighters responded to a house in the 3600 block of E. Vermont Street for a house fire. After the fire was extinguished, responders found a body inside. What was originally called a death investigation is now being investigated as a homicide with IMPD.

On Monday, the Marion County Coroner’s Office released the name of the person killed, Charles Burgess Jr., 24.

“He deserves people to reach out to him and find out who did this to him,” said Miranda Wood, Burgess’ mother.

Wood said his son had no enemies.

“I have no idea who would do this,” Wood said.

She said her son was homeless by choice, suffered from a mental illness and was trying to change his life, but had a troubled past. Still, she said he didn’t deserve it.

“I have to bury my baby now when he should bury me,” Wood said.

Wood said she worked hard to watch over her son, but this has been a tough year.

“I was diagnosed with leukemia in February, so it was kind of a battle to keep an eye on him the way I wanted,” Wood said.

The Marion County coroner’s office only says the cause of death is “multiple trauma.” IMPD Public Information Officer William Young said more information is expected to come out later.

“This will come from the Marion County District Attorney’s office as the investigation progresses,” Young said.

People who live near the house on E. Vermont Street said this has been a problem for some time now, with several people entering and exiting each day.

IMPD detectives on site said both sides of the house were vacant.

Wood said she dropped her son there before going out with a friend she thought was living there.

“He’s been to the house every now and then over the past four months that I know of,” she said.

The IMPD is also looking at this as arson and says there are no suspects in custody so far.

“We leave nothing to chance,” Young said.

Anyone with information on this matter is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
